Tune of the Day: The Hag by the Fire

Traditional Irish reel

The earliest appearance of this tune in print is in Francis O'Neill's The Dance Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1907. A few years later it was published again, with some minor differences and under the title “The Golden Wedding”, in O'Neill's Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody.
